A tragic end....
Wow, that's a darn shame. May he rest in peace.
I always enjoyed his programs.
My thoughts go out to his family.
Yes this was a rather big story here as you can imagine.
I think every single aussie new within the first 2hours what had happened, it really spread extremely fast.
However almost everyone couldn’t believe it because it was such a freak accident. Only one other person is known to have been killed by a normally harmless stingray.
Our harts go out to his family especial his wife and two daughters. I think that his elder daughter (Bindy )will have a really hard time getting over this because Steve was out there shooting a documentary for her, unfortunately I'm sure she feels partly responsible.
Even as I type this and watch some American News (because its 0512) here its making the headlines. Its amazing how much of a star he really was.
PS: I do however assure you that no other aussie actually talks like he did.
Train Hard - Fight Easy
I agree with you totally Jake. However, they say a cat has nine lives, and he did; to be fair, use more than that by far.Very tragic, but i feel it was inevitable, given his line of work. The stingray as you say makes it even more bizarre, as i have stroked them myself.Ive said for years..one day, they will get him.

Truely a shame... my tears are shed for the children who do not have a father anymore and for the wife who is now without a partner.

I always thought it'd be a snake really...
I wish he could have died of old age :frown: :cry:

He died how he lived and you gotta respect that.
Yeah, I recently learned (how bizzare is this?) that Steve Irwin was the first stingray caused death in over 60 years. :embarassed:
Extremely unfortunate. R.I.P.
Yes too bad he was hit right in the wrong place : the heart :tired:
